Omega La La out June 21st via Sin Duda Records
 
Band On Tour Now, See Full Dates Below!

 
“The (now) Brooklyn-based band love tricky arrangements, whistle solos, disco guitar leads. I liked “Silly Fathers” for its “I’m Coming Out”-like guitar and blithe vocals from lead singer Kalmia Traver. It reminds me of Central Park, lawns, and roller skating.” – Stereogum
 
 “…bobs along merrily with warmth and punch provided by muted brass, intrigue courtesy of the unexpected twists in the arrangements, and humor by a penchant for whistle solos. Fans of the Dirty Projectors will be pleased.” – The Wall Street Journal
 
“Rubblebucket’s the kind of music that’s nearly impossibly to pigeonhole.” – Nylon
 
Rubblebucket is happy to announce it’s headlining spot for Bikes Rock, The Bicycle Film Festival’s official kick-off at Santos Party House on 6/22! In honor of their headlining spot, the band has made their track “Bikes”  available for free download. Grab the track HERE. The track first appeared on the band’s 2009 self-titled record.
 

The band’s appearance at the Bicycle Film Festival comes as the band is preparing to release their latest record, Omega La La on June 21st via Sin Duda Records. The album was recorded at Plantain/DFA Studios and finds the band collaborating for the first time with legendary producer/mixer Eric Broucek (LCD Soundsystem, Cut Copy, Hercules and Love Affair) for the Brooklyn eight piece’s most adventurous record yet. The band recently premiered their latest video for “Silly Fathers” on Stereogum.

Ki:Theory Teams Up With Holy Fuck, Release “Holiday Heart” Single MP3!

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on May 24, 2011 by dk

Ki:Theory (a.k.a. Joel Burleson) is a recording artist and producer who walks the tightrope between electronic and indie/alternative rock. Ki:Theory has also lent his adventurous sound  to remixes for Daft Punk, Queens of the Stone Age, Ladytron, and Brazilian Girls among others. Having already rocked Bonnaroo and djed for Betsey Johnson’s during NYC fashion week, Ki:Theory has returned to the studio to work on new material. Today, May 24, he has released the single for “Holiday Heart.” For the B-side, he teamed up with Holy Fuck for a remix of UNKLE’s track “Natural Selection” which features The Black Angels.

Check out the “Holiday Heart” MP3  HERE!

 
“Holiday Heart” has a bright vocal melody, skittering beat, and an instantly memorable hook with something a little darker brewing beneath the surface. “(Holiday Heart) is actually a medical condition you get when you’ve been hitting the whiskey and summer sausage a little too hard (commonly around the holidays).  I’ve always thought it makes a great metaphor for ‘to much of a good thing.”, explains Burleson. The b-side is an Olympian collaboration between Ki:Theory, UNKLE, Holy Fuck, and The Black Angels. “Natural Selection” is such a great song to start.  I’m a huge fan of UNKLE, The Black Angels, and Holy Fuck. I did a remix for UNKLE once before [2007’s “Hold My Hand”], so getting asked to contribute to something all these great artists had collaborated on was just phenomenal.  Holy Fuck had already laid some really nice textures and ambient soundscapes for the remix so getting in there with big drums and some leads seemed like a cool direction.”, says Burleson.
 
Ki:Theory has also recently contributed a remix of Daft Punk’s “The Son of Flynn” to Daft Punk/Tron: Legacy remix album “Reconfigured”. His song “Arms for Legs” is also featured alongside Sleigh Bells and Silversun Pickups in the trailer for John Singleton’s new film “Abduction”. This month, his remix of  the song “Angelica” is also featured on  the “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” soundtrack by Rodrigo y Gabriela with Hans Zimmer.
 
The “Holiday Heart” single is available at:

Gemmy “Jah Know / They live under the stairs” ( World of Wonders – WOW001 )(preview)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 24, 2011 by dk

Multiverse Music is proud to announce the launch of a new imprint, World Of Wonders aka W.O.W! Joining the ranks of Tectonic, Kapsize, Build, Caravan, Subtext and Earwax – W.O.W is a home for Bristolian purple w0w’er Gemmy to showcase his infectious beats and production talent.

Having first appeared on Peverelist’s highly respected Punch Drunk imprint, Gemmy soon went on to release a number of underground dancefloor belters on the seminal Planet Mu imprint. Having established his particular shade of purple w0w alongside Bristol production peers Joker and Guido, Gemmy’s beats lean more to a dancefloor heavy cut.

Built to make the speakers bleed both ‘Jah Know’ and ‘They Live Under The Stairs’ cut through a system crisp, clean and deadly. Gemmy may have been quiet on the release front recently but it’s clear here that he’s been fine tuning his skills in the studio to devastating effect. Drop these riddims in your set and you’ll see the effects for yourself. Quality music made for the dance, perfectly executed. 2011 is going to be a good year for Gemmy, watch him rise up.

DJ Support from –

Mistajam, Joker, N-type, Guido, Plastician, MRK1, Baobinga, Chef and many more…

Gemmy’s official label launch night will take place the 1st of June at Basement 45, Bristol (UK)
